Basenkyo Gorge

馬仙峡(二戸市)

Basenkyo is a beautiful gorge along the Mabechigawa River, with a dynamic rocky scenery. The most impressive rocks are the 180-m Ogami-iwa Rock and the 160-m Megami-iwa Rock, standing high above the river. “Ogami” and “megami” mean “god” and “goddess,” respectively; they were together designated as national places of scenic beauty in 2006. There is an observation deck on Ogami-iwa, from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the gorge and its surroundings. Every season has its beauty at Basenkyo, but the fall colors in mid-October and the lush greens in early May are especially magnificent.
